Get cosy in the Winter Village Cottage
Continuing the Winter Village series, build the Winter Village Cottage for a perfect holiday home. Seat Grandpa snugly by the fireplace with his newspaper
as you help Dad to put up the tree, then bake a feast in the kitchen with Mom! When it’s time to stock up the storage shed with firewood, bring
the kids for a ride with Dad on the sled watch him cut the wood with his chain-saw deep in the forest. When the snow gets really deep, clear
the road with the snowplough, take all of the kids skiing or build an igloo to play in. There’s no cosier place to spend long, frosty nights!

And we are getting the Winter Village Cottage! I saw a pic of it in a Lego store (an employee there showed it to me). The B-Wing and the Haunted House were there as well. In my excitment I forgot to get the set number, but the set name is Winter Village Cottage. It's got a blue cottage (duh!) with white (snowy) ceiling, some minifigs and another small "thing" on the side which I couldn't really identify (a small building like the Winter Village Post Office? Sorry, but it was in this this low-quality printed piece of paper...)
Nevertheless, it seems lovely!
First official news of the set.
If we look at the piece count......
